Last week I celebrated my own anniversary of solar orbits completed, and this week I am celebrating the seventh anniversary of this here blog. SEVEN YEARS. Seems sort of crazy, but there you are. The title refers to the total number of posts that I’ve made over that time. Again, sort of crazy. It has…

Everyday is Scraturday

Okay, I admit it. I look sometimes. That’s right. I will – on occasion — click over to my “site stats” page to see how many views a certain post might have received. Is that really so bad? Do I need to change my name to BlogVanity? I hope not. Anyway, I like to think…

There’s a fun meme that has gone around for the past couple days about asking folks interview questions. I first heard about it from Steph. Here’s a quick run down on how to play and her original post here: If you’re interested in getting interviewed by me, leave me a comment saying, “Interview Me.” Please…

1,001 San Diegan Nights

According to my WordPress dashboard widget, this is my 1001st post. Yowser. Hooray for me, I suppose. Though really I should be saying hooray for you, too – the folks that stop by, read, leave comments and share yourselves here, because I am hardly Scheherazade. I’d probably still write this blog for myself as a…
